A video of the violence which erupted during the governorship campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos has surfaced.
Several people were injured in the violence, including three journalists who sustained bullet wounds.
The hoodlums, said to be members of the National Union Road Transport Workers (NURTW), invaded the Skypower Ground Ikeja venue of the campaign with guns, daggers and other dangerous weapons.
While the fight was ongoing, Akinwunmi Ambode, Lagos state governor, could be heard delivering his speech.
Below is a video of the violence captured by Ovation TV.
